This event helps fund YWCA’s Nourish Program, this year 270 pottery bowls plus 19 wooden bowls sold, raising $33,104.00. Nourish combines dignified access to nutritious food, gardening and cooking skills along with programming designed to empower individuals to advocate for themselves and others and grow a just food system for all. By harnessing the power of food, Nourish brings people together to build a collective sense of belonging, while working towards the systemic changes required to end food insecurity and poverty.
Are you looking for an evening with great entertainment, refreshments, good company and the ability to go home with an individual piece of pottery? Look no further, do we have the event for you.
Celebrate Ceramics is a fundraising event for the Kawartha Potters Guild. Join us on Friday April 8, 2022 at the Lion’s Club in Peterborough, Ontario. Tickets are $75.00. Everyone who purchases an Event Ticket will be entered into a draw. Throughout the evening, Event Tickets will be drawn at random. When the ticket holder’s number is drawn, that person can choose one pottery item from those displayed to take home! If that is not enough, all ticket holders will receive a complimentary glass of wine, refreshments and entertainment. You can bring a guest for $25.00, but they will not be eligible for the pottery draw.
To support this fundraiser, the Kawartha Potters Guild has received donations of pottery from our Guild members and from potters throughout Ontario including Teresa Dunlop, Naomi Clement, Monika Schaefer, Anne Chambers, Thom Lambert, Thomas Aitken and Kate Hyde. The Guild has also received sponsorship from a number of local businesses including Empirical Assessment Solutions, Summit Terrace, Peterborough Gardens, AYA Kitchen Designs, and Cornerstone family Dentistry. We are most grateful for the support from our local businesses as well as other Ontario potters.
All funds raised will assist the growth of the ceramic arts community by helping to promote and foster the creativity of ceramic artists and the ceramic arts community. Funds raised will also support ceramic arts education for all ages and skills in Peterborough and the Kawarthas.
So come join us for a fun social evening, admire (and take home) some really stunning ceramic works. If you have any questions about purchasing tickets (they are available in our Pottery Shop), please call us at 705-742-4979 or contact our Administrator.
